Hebrews 11:29-12:2 In a culture of both church and society which emphasizes feeling, freedom, immediate gratification, and self-expression, have we deleted endurance from our list of virtues?

As the Navnath are strongly worshiped in Maharashtra; the book is written in Marathi. It is believed that reading it in a specific manner is beneficial to human mind; soul and body. The Navnath sampradaya spreads the message of Krishna that God exists everywhere and not just in a particular form or lack thereof. The Avatar of Dattatreya (Unified form of the trinity) came on the mission on earth to dispel confusion of earthlings who thought the three are different.[citation needed] The teachings of the Nath Sampradaya have; over the centuries; become labyrinthine in complexity and have assumed different forms in different parts of India. Its teaching emphasises that the Supreme Reality can be realised only within the heart.In the day-to-day instructions to their devotees the Nath Gurus seldom refer to the metaphysics discovered by the scholars in their teachings. Chanting of sacred hymns and devotional songs as well as the worship of the idols is a traditional feature of the sect.[citation ne Mahabharata The coming of the Navnath - or nine prophets - is mentioned in the Mahabharata. Krishna called a meeting of all demi-gods; angels and saints to give his message of how he would continue his message of spreading good after his mission is over on earth. Krishna said he would send his own light in the form of nine saints or prophets; who will go to different parts of earth and throughout the universe where life exists. Lord Krishna also mentions that these prophets or saints will spread the message of Love; overcoming obstacles in order to unite with Mahavishnu or Shiva or Shakti. Krishna said that they would help only those who have good souls and true believers. NAVNATH Nathyogis worship nine Nathas and eighty-four Siddhas. Nathas are religious leaders; or gurus; or guides; who derive their names from Adinatha; or Siva. Siva himself is called a Natha. While the word natha is a synonym for Hindu Yogi; ' and while it is a sect name of the Kanphatas still; in this connection it refers to the nine great or deified and immortal teachers of the sect; of whom Gorakhnath is sometimes called the chief. They now live far back in the holy Himalayas Their names vary from people to people. Gorakhnatha (the chief natha); matsyendranatha; Carpatnatha; Mangalnatha; Ghugo­natha; Gopinatha; Prannatha; Suratnatha and Cambanatha. They are not related to the divisions of the orders. In another list nine Nathas are named; each of whom is identified with a Hindu god. These are:1. Aumgkar Adinatha (Lord of Lords); Siva; 2. Shelnatha (Lord of the Arrow Shaft); Krisna or Rama Chandra; 3. Santoknatha (Lord of Gratification) 4. Acalacambhunatha (Lord of Wondrous Immortality); Hanuman or Laksman; 5. Gajbali Gajkanthnatha (Lord of the Elephant's Strength and Neck)) Ganesa Gajikarna (Elephant-Eared); 6. Prajnatha; or Udainatha (Lord of the People); Parvati; 7.
